Abstract : We give a general Riemannian framework to the study of approximation of curvature measures, using the theory of the normal cycle. Moreover, we introduce a differential form which allows to define a new type of curvature measure encoding the second fundamental form of a hypersurface, and to extend this notion to geometric compact subsets of a Riemannian manifold . Finally, if a geometric compact subset is close to a smooth hypersurface of a Riemannian manifold, we compare their second fundamental form (in the previous sense), and give a bound of their difference in terms of geometric invariants and the mass of the involved normal cycles.
